Experience Description

I passed out from the rush of air ( I think). I was standing on a beach naked, approximately twenty feet in front of me was another naked person, in front of him/her at the same distance another and so forth. I couldn't move my body, however I could move my eyes. I could not speak either, I couldn't move my lips. Beside me in both directions at about twenty feet were other people, and beside them others. We were all naked and unmoving unable to speak, only hear and see. The beach was endless. The most captivating part of this was that there was an ocean with waves crashing in over people, who were unable to move, and then receding to show that person was still there.

The ocean was not water but fire, in the shape and appearance of water. It seemed to me that this tide was coming in. I stared at this in bewilderment, hence finding out I could not speak let alone cry out, my mind was frantic. Then to my right I noticed that there was someone moving freely, not walking but just appearing in front of some of the people there. I had noticed this person from a long way off as he seemed very small, just an silhouette, then he was in front of me. He had a kind face; grey robes; a grey head scarf like that worn by Muslims; and a whitish grey beard. He uttered no words for I did not see his mouth move, but he 'said', 'You do not belong here.' And the next instant I was flying at quite some height over the fire sea and then I awoke to find the whole school surrounding me.

None of my friends would tell me what had happened but within my own mind and heart I knew that I was not with them. Since then I have had three out of body experiences, leaving no further than three feet from where I lay, from fright more than anything else. I've also seen into the near future, usually within an hour, and sometimes I get unlearned knowledge which is hard to explain.
